Night Lane Closures on I-293 at Exit 4 in Manchester
Drainage Installation Work Over Two Weeks

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) announces temporary night lane closures are planned on I-293 in Manchester, both northbound and southbound, in the vicinity of Exit 4 for drainage installation across the highway.

Weather permitting, the I-293 lane closures are scheduled to take place from Tuesday, May 27th, until Saturday, June 7th, from 7:00 pm until 6:00 am each night, excluding the weekend. Interstate 293 will have one open lane at all times in each direction.

The temporary night time lane closures are to allow for drainage installation across I-293. These drainage improvements are necessary to accommodate the construction of the additional third lane on I-293 southbound. Electronic message boards and traffic control devices will be used to alert and assist motorists during the lane closures.

This work is part of the I-293 widening and bridge replacement project in the vicinity of Exit 4. The project includes the replacement of four "Red Listed" bridges and the rehabilitation of one "Red Listed" bridge at the I-293 Exit 4 Interchange.

The road work includes: construction of a third southbound lane, beginning approximately 150 feet north of the existing northbound on-ramp and continuing approximately 0.6 mile south; Exit 4 ramps reconstruction and pavement rehabilitation; sound wall construction; drainage improvements; water line reconstruction; installation of concrete median barrier; and guardrail improvements.

Severino Trucking Inc., of Candia, New Hampshire is the general contractor for the $26.2 million project, which has a completion date of November 18, 2016.
